Failed logic: So, why am I waiting in line for an iPhone 5S?

Want the iPhone 5S? Get in line, brother.

LOS ANGELES — Call it impatience, call it going from the peak of inflated expectations to the trough of disillusionment in 60 minutes.

I had the privilege of waiting in line for the iPhone 5S Friday morning at a Verizon store while talking with patrons who seemed to be constantly questioning why they were there.

The man that stood behind me started by explaining why he hated his Samsung Galaxy (I think it was an S4). He gave a half dozen reasons why he loathed the kludgy Samsung interface.

So far, so good. Then as the wait time became 30 minutes, then 45 minutes, then an hour, his reasoning took an abrupt U-turn.

“Hey, the 5S really isn’t that different than the 5,” he said loud enough for everyone to hear, though I think he was addressing the comment to me.

Five minutes later, I turned around and he was gone.
